Meet the teams

Teamwork plays an important part in the operation of our school. Different teams of people have different roles in the school, as follows:

Teaching Teams

We have a highly qualified, able team of teachers and support staff. The teachers meet weekly to plan, prepare and assess.

They also have a weekly meeting, either a Staff Meeting or a Team Meeting, to discuss learning priorities for the children.

Admin/Site Team

A school is only as good as its team of support staff. We like to think that our team is one of the best. If you have any queries or need any advice about visiting the school or admissions, about the local area or anything else, phone the office and our friendly staff will be only too willing to help.

Teaching Assistants

Teaching Assistants take on general learning support roles in all parts of the school. Some are employed specifically to support individual children with statements of Special Educational Needs. We have a very able team of TAs, many of whom take small groups for dedicated consolidation of maths and English skills. TAs receive training and attend regular meetings to discuss common issues. Our Higher Level Teaching Assistants also cover lessons, to release teacher colleagues for a range of leadership, planning and assessment activities.

School Meal Supervisory Assistants

We have a highly-regarded team of SMSAs, who supervise the children at lunchtimes. They meet regularly to discuss issues and receive training, and have a key role to play in ensuring that the children enjoy their lunch breaks.
